One of the joys of travel is to experience different cultures and if you want a taste of traditional Townsville, this is the place. I stayed two nights with my son (15). The building is 80 plus years old and has out-dated decor, but that is its charm. It is clean and the rooms are quiet, cosy, have a fan, TV and fridge. The kitchen is well-appointed and there are tables inside, though we ate breakfast in the pleasant courtyard. The shared bathrooms are of an older style, but everything is well-maintained and clean. John, the owner is easy-going and very helpful, happily storing luggage and calling a taxi for us. Shops and a supermarket are only a couple of minutes walk and The Strand, while further, is within easy reach. In short Coral Lodge is inexpensive, welcoming and had everything we needed. If you need 5 star accommodation go elsewhere (and pay a lot more). Personally I'd happily stay again.
